Yeah I'm really bummed about it. I can try to set up some sort of 2-3 night campout if y'all want. Won't be quite as excellent as the lodge, but better than nothing.

Not always, but that period of September is generally conducive to camping weather-wise.

we weren't going to tell you, but the core group got together and decided that since we all knew you'd bitch out for SOME REASON, we'd beat you to the official punch and just cancel the whole dadgum thing

Sorry to hear the event is scrubbed for 2020. Here are a couple memory shots from the inaugural event in 2015, Labor Day weekend:





Don't be sad..... start planning the next one!

Hope those mexican sodas were worth it.

edit: and also, happy birthday. I'm in the woods with no service, so no texts for a few days.

double edit: remote, but not WNC remote. have internet and didn't have to send a hotspot up on a weather balloon.

Yeah, I'm thinking for 2020 we do something low-key along the lines of the first year. I have a friend with some camping-friendly land out towards the Dragon I'll hit up, that way we're still safe from cancellations.

As soon as the forest service processes my refund for the lodge, I'll begin refunding those who sent a deposit already.

That first year at that camp ground near the Dragon was pretty fun. A lot less people that first year, and we packed in that camp ground, but still fun.

Keep my food money for beer, since you go through a lot to do this.

i think we need 3-4 more mini-meets this year in the mountains.... 1 for RWD, 1 for P2's, 1 for off-road and bicycles, and 1 for motorcycles

Thanks for posting those! Nice to see my car on the road!

The Blue 244 (pictured) has been sitting the last couple of years. Finally finishing my PhD next week, then moving to New Mexico in August for a great job. Should (finally) be building a nice drivetrain for the car over the winter.
